    Pros

    Nothing- don't waste your time- get far away as you can from there. Their pay is beyond low and they over work you and they think its ok because they "gave you a job".

    Cons

    Don't waste your time- there are just too many CON's so to make it simple, just don't bother applying for this company.

    Advice to Management

    The whole company needs to change. Very very very unprofessional.

    Pros

    Youthful work environment, co-workers always willing to lend a helping hand, nice customers.

    Cons

    Manager was never accommodating in terms of scheduling (wasn't allowed to take time off for a funeral), sold dirty or ripped clothing, hours are cut for no reason, ridiculous return policy.

    Advice to Management

    Carefully evaluate your store managers, pay closer attention to how employees are spoken to and trained by supervisors and managers.

    I worked at Papaya Clothing part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was fine for someone maybe in high school looking for extra money

    Cons

    Not a very happy workplace environment. The managers rarely expressed satisfaction with employees and did not communicate well what needed to be done

    Pros

    - Good start for high schoolers
    - If you don't have bills to pay , minimum $8 will be fine.

    Cons

    - Bosses are horrible, they can't contribute to working, complete lazy high school girls & managers will disrespect you .
    - Pay is horrible & they take YEARS to raise you
    - There is a favoritism role that plays a huge part here
    - Flexible at first & they make you work like slaves

    Advice to Management

    - Watch your management team rather than expect more sales

    Pros

    Near my home
    Cute clothing

    Cons

    The store did not have a management team that was encouraging or that would teach. It was just someone telling you do this and do that. Environment was just work work work.

    I have been working at Papaya Clothing part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very nice and friendly

    Cons

    Low pay for hard work, low benefits, management, no opportunity to grow within the company, pretty much everything

    Advice to Management

    Ask sales associates what they feel needs to change. Reward them when doing good. Rather than calling a meeting to tell what everyone is doing wrong. Actually do evaluations to encourage employees to do better to get that raise. Don't just say you'll do them and not do it. Offer direct deposit, or actually send the checks on time.

    Pros

    Great company to work for--the leadership is solid and the location is easily commutable. Opportunities for growth are unlimited.

    Cons

    More vacation would and 5% minimum raises each year would be nice :) As would remote/work from home options.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees!
